Our friends Jonathan and Fiona invited us for a Indian dinner, and I brought this dessert:
Mango are quite expensive in NZ, and not always very good, but in the Indian shop I found this big can of Mango pulp.
850 g mango pulp
250 ml water
2 tsp agar agar powder
Place the mango pulp and water into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the agar agar powder and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring. Pour into a mould (mine had a hole in the centre) and let it set for a few hours, first at room temperature, and then in the fridge.
For the strawberries:
600 g strawberries
half a lemon
1 cinnamon quill
2 tbsp sugar
Hull and wash the strawberries, cut into small pieces and add the juice of half a lemon, one cinnamon quill and three cloves. Add 2 tsp of sugar and stir. Let the strawberries marinate for a few hours at room temperature and then cool in the fridge.
Thank you Jonathan and Fifi for the great evening and food! :-)
